this because by november of next year, you are going to be running for with obama care and people will have discovered. he cautioned patience. he said everybody needs to take a deep breath and everybody needs to go to the website and explore their options and then sign up. they have not had a problem getting people to sign up. the polling said that young people don't have health care for the same reason that everyone doesn't. too much money. yet if they go to the website, they are likely to find a plan to afford health care because they get a subsidy. >> that is a fascinating statistic. 40% of those signing up being under age 35. >> i am not sure they have done special outreach. the fact is when it's available and easily accessible from your home and on your computer, the people in general do understand that a bicycle accident, playing touch football, you can get a broken ankle and end up going to the emergency room and suddenly you are thousands of dollars in debt. if you can go to the website and sign up for a plan that is between 50 and $100 a month, it would be very, very well worth it.

and go to their constituencies and account for that in some manner, i'm sure, going into next cycle. yes, there's been a lot of noise around obama care. and its launch in october. and the failures that float from that. but as you know, joy, i've said from the very beginning of this year that, you know, the party has an opportunity to put some real -- substantive policy on the table to differentiate itself not just rhetorically from this administration, but, you know, and politically, but also in terms of what it hopes to accomplish in something -- with something like obama care. and i think that that opportunity is still there. the question he is, do they take advantage of it going into a new year, where you're going to have on top of, you know, the watch, the death watch by republicans and the hopeful watch by democrats, you know, in the launch of obama care, the budget issues, sequester and all these things begin to take a new shape, beginning in just a few short weeks. >> and, you know, jonathan, a lot of times presidencies are pronounced dead over and over again by the media, every w

that democrats have an advantage. republicans want them to think it's a disadvantage. that obama care, the website, wasn't working and all the glitches. but come next year when people are going to the doctor, it's going to be a plus for democrats. >> well, it does feel like professor dyson, that's exactly where the president was going. i want to play more sound from today, because he was pretty much sending that exact same message. let's lesson. >> you can't just say that the system was working with 41 million people without health insurance. you can't just say that the system is working when you've got a whole bunch of folks who thought they had decent insurance, and then when they got sick, it turned out it wasn't there for them. go back, take a look at what's actually going on. because it can make a difference in your lives, and lives of your families. >> so, you know, professor dyson, one of the biggest criticisms of the president and democrats and the way they did health care reform, they never really explained that to people. never explained why you have to do health care reform
